COCKROACHES AT HOME
Cockroaches are not just nuisance pests. They can also cause many diseases and pose problems for people with allergies and asthma. It has a recognition of being infamous for contaminating everything around them. This is true whether it is food or surfaces such as bedding or carpeting. In this regard, it can cause an unhealthy living environment.
These pests can turn into a costly problem to have around your house or business. It is one of the most common insects found in building settings and homes. We estimate nearly 50% of all our services come from this creature. Cockroach control is a multi-billion dollar industry with thousands of businesses from local exterminators. This is up to large national franchise companies providing extermination services.
The popularity of this service is wide that many choose to perform them at their homes rather than hiring professionals. But we do not recommend it as most cockroach traps and chemicals available in the market may not turn effective on them. They may cause harm to you and your family members.
Our Cockroach Extermination Methods and Process
Seeking our cockroach control and extermination service means familiarizing yourself with our methods and process.
We begin the process by performing an inspection of your residence or business. This is done to determine how big of a problem you are up against. Cockroach infestations are usually visible in bathrooms, kitchen pantries, closets, and garages.
Other common areas include cable connections, under appliances, around plumbing fixtures, behind electrical plates, inside furniture joints, and cracks on the wall. Cockroaches can survive for more than a month without food. But they cannot live for more than three days without water.
Cockroach extermination is mainly carried out through their droppings, dead bodies, and saliva. The principle of controlling the cockroach population is by limiting their access to moisture and food sources.
Treatment options available are as follows:
·Cockroach bombs or foggers
·Cockroach spray for quick knockdown action
·Cockroach bait applications are done through professional service (traditional baits like Vendetta Plus, Advion roach gel.)
What Exactly Is A Cockroach?
Cockroaches are insects that feed on organic material or nearly anything edible. Cockroach control is a difficult task because most of these creatures live in hidden areas throughout the day. They only come out at night to look for food.
They prefer warm and moist areas such as near water sources, under sinks, and cracks on the floor. Cockroaches are visible during the summer months. But they emerge mainly in springtime when the weather starts to get warmer. They also tend to return after winter even with damaged colonies. Likewise, removal from your home or business premises is not enough to prevent them from coming back.
A cockroach’s life cycle is about 12 to 16 months. It starts with an egg and ends in an adult body. Cockroaches mate by the thousands and spread rapidly when their populations grow. Furthermore, it increases when they eat well enough to produce more eggs.
Different Cockroach Species Found in Homes
There are over 4,000 different types of cockroaches found throughout the world. The most common species in the United States include:
American Cockroaches (Periplaneta americana) – reddish-brown color
· German Cockroaches (Blattella germanica) – light brown or tan
· Oriental Cockroaches (Blatta orientalis) – shiny dark brown body
